    100% fresh

    Life, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 04/01/2019

    » A familiar pok-pok sound greets me as I enter the newly-renovated Charoen Krung favourite, 80/20. This is intentional, I later learn, intended to remind diners that 80/20 is a Thai kitchen serving Thai cuisine. The expanded space has a wall with murals by local artist Luke Satoru and Khun Rose, the mother of one of 80/20's chefs.

    A taste of Isan

    » Blink or you'll miss it! Tucked away, at the top of Thong Lor 17, next door to the Family Mart, in what looks like a small Chinese shophouse is the latest branch of Somtum Der. Opened in March, it's the first branch in Bangkok after the original Somtum Der opened in Sala Daeng in 2012.

    » When chef Thitid "Ton" Tassanakajohn isn't jet-setting the world as the unofficial ambassador for Thai cuisine, he is busy making a name for himself and Le Du worldwide. Having been on the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list for a few years, No.14 in 2018, Le Du earned its first Michelin star this month.

    Warm, welcoming, rustic

    » Mallard, a newish Mediterranean eatery is nestled half-way in the popular food soi that is Sukhumvit 49, attached to the Adelphi Forty-Nine Hotel. Named after the dabbling duck known for its adaptability, the restaurant's philosophy is "what we cook is who we are", with a focus on wild and exotic meats. The interior looks like a country farmhouse, with a patio and terrace seating, complete with potted plants, outdoor fans (to keep the hot summer days cool), animal trophies, antler chandeliers and wood and leather furniture. Warm lighting completes the look, which includes a bar in the centre of the restaurant. A very macho restaurant.

    Nothing bitter about this man

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 06/07/2018

    » Bitterman, on Sala Daeng Soi 1, is a 40-year-old house complete with an atrium, full of plants. The restaurant also has leather chairs and tables inside. But since sitting outside in Bangkok is rare, the glass house is by far the most popular, especially during dinner and at weekends when brunch is served. It is also the best spot to be in the afternoon while the warm sun bathes you through the glass, which makes you forget you're in Bangkok for a wee bit. "Even though the concept of the restaurant is home cooking, I think it's a tad boring so I have changed the way we present the food. The best way to describe my menu is simple and sexy," laughs chef de la cuisine Enzo Dela Cruz.

    The Italian affair

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Sukhumvit 31 is a long soi and we often tend to forget the little cut off street leading to Soi 23. Calderazzo On 31 is on this forgotten street. Having recently moved from Langsuan to 31, Calderazzo is Italian with a difference. It has a rather bistro-like feel to it, with plenty of tables for private or romantic dinners. There is also a patio for those who enjoy the occasional breeze Mother Nature allows Bangkok.

    50 shades of cheese

    » Blink and you'll miss it! The entrance to Ekamai 16 is rather small, narrow and the street sign is barely visible among Bangkok's iconic wire tangle. But what it leads to is a new restaurant serving good old American fare, complete with craft beers -- The Fat Tap. The casual setting in a townhouse is all wood, which is a step up from owner Matthew Fischer's very popular Fatty's Bar and Diner on Din Daeng. The Fat Tap has the cosy feel of a hip hostel, minus the backpackers, with long wooden benches softened by throw pillows. Classic tracks from yesteryear blast in the background and add more character compared to the other pricey craft beer places found in the area.

    Where East meets West

    Brunch, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 30/12/2018

    » A metropolis of more than 15 million people, and historically one of the world's most vibrant cities, Istanbul has always been a mix of Western culture and Eastern exoticism.

    Dinner under the stars

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 16/11/2018

    » With the Bangkok dining scene bursting at its seams, hotel dining has taken a back seat. More so for hotels in the 'burbs. Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is more of a business hotel, with a convention centre attached to it. But, it does have a few good dining outlets -- like Blue Sky. Perhaps the only rooftop bar in that part of town, Blue Sky offers a panoramic view of the suburbs from 24-storey high.
